Schell Games, makers of I Expect You to Die (2016), have announced their hit spy-themed puzzle game is going to be a day-one launch title for Quest.

Initially debuting as a demo on Oculus Rift developer kits in 2015, I Expect You To Die went on to become one of the industry’s most successful games to date. Available across PSVR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift (a Touch launch title), the escape room puzzle game surpassed $3 million in revenue in September 2018.

In the game, players take on the roll of an elite secret agent, and try to escape a bevy of patently Bond-style traps, all of which are designed to kill you if your wits aren’t sharp enough. Using motion controllers, you solve puzzles to live and progress, or fail and get blown up, lasered, or snuffed out in a number of fun and creative ways.

That said, I Expect You to Die has aged extremely well despite being one of the first wave of VR games to exit the gate, making it an ideal entry into the 50+ launch titles promised by Oculus.

To boot, CEO of Schell Games Jesse Schell says the studio is planning to continue its efforts to expand the game with free, new content coming later this year.

Furthermore, the studio announced that I Expect You To Die will be among the many games available for cross-buy on Quest. Oculus is promoting cross-buy functionality with Quest to developers, meaning if you already purchased the game through the Oculus Store for Rift, you’ll be able to download it for free when Quest hits your doorstep. This is less than a rule, and more of a suggestion by Oculus, so not all games will necessarily feature cross-buy.

And when exactly can we expect to start defusing complicated bombs and getting blown to smithereens when we inevitably fail?With F8 rapidly approaching, Facebook could use the venue as an opportunity to announce the official launch day for Quest, the $400 standalone VR headset.

We’ll have feet on the ground in San Jose, California for the Facebook’s annual dev conference, which takes place between April 30th and May 1st.

    I actually gain around $6,000-$8,000 every 30 days using the internet. This is a sufficient amount to very easily replace my last tasks earnings, specifically taking into account I simply just do the work almost 20 hr a week in a home office.I lost my job after doing work for the same organization for a long period, I required very reliable source of income. I was not thinking about programs that promises to make you rich in just few days you can find all over the internet. Those all are kind of ponzi network marketing business plans in which you have to first make interested customers and then sell a product to friends or family members or anyone so that they will be in your team. The greatest benefit of working on-line is that I am always home with the children and also enjoy time with family on different beaches of the world. Honestly,it is easier than you would think, all you need to do is submit a simple form to obtain front line access to the Home Profit System. The instructions are extremely easy, you don’t have to be a computer whiz, however you should be aware how to use the net. It is as easy as being on Facebook. Here’s the simplest way to start —->
